If you thought "Finding Dory" was just a cute family movie, think again.
After hearing that Donald Trump screened her film "Finding Dory" at the White House over the weekend, Ellen DeGeneres used the film to comment on the president's immigration policies without actually discussing them. She revisited aspects of the film's plot, while making it very clear how she feels about the wall and recent travel ban. You'd be surprised by how well the film applies.
"Dory arrives in America with her friends Marlin and Nemo," DeGeneres said. "She ends up at the Marine Life Institute behind a large wall, and they all have to get over the wall. And you won't believe it, but that wall has almost no effect in keeping them out."
She continued, explaining that Dory ends up in a situation where she's alone in America and she needs help. Luckily for her, the other animals are willing to help her.
"They help her, even though they're completely different colors, because that's what you do when you see someone in need -- you help them," DeGeneres said.
The message might not have gotten across at the White House, but DeGeneres's audience definitely loved it.
Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) is a wide-eyed, blue tang fish who suffers from memory loss every 10 seconds or so. The one thing she can remember is that she somehow became separated from her parents as a child. With help from her friends Nemo and Marlin, Dory embarks on an epic adventure to find them. Her journey brings her to the Marine Life Institute, a conservatory that houses diverse ocean species. Dory now knows that her family reunion will only happen if she can save mom and dad from captivity. Read More
